Nanu'ávaha Seventh Grade Lesson 3: Native Food And Culture

Nanu'ávaha (Our Food) curriculum developed by many to collect, present and perpetual tribal knowledge to and for the next generations.
Lesson plans for Lesson 3 of the Seventh Grade curriculum. Students will learn about social issues revolving around harvesting food, such as Karuk traditional gender roles in hunting, gathering and fishing activities and contemporary adaptations, as well as spirituality and etiquette in harvesting foods. Students will learn to respect that these voiced and sometimes implicit understandings are socialization mechanisms, and will be different in each culture – and perhaps even in each family.
